Devotions for Life

“Not Puffed Up”

“For every one that exalts himself shall be humbled; and he that humbles himself shall be exalted” (Luke 14:11).
Love is not puffed up. What can this mean? The Amplified Version says, “(Love) does not display itself haughtily.” The Living New Testament says “(Love) is not proud.” The New Testament in Modern English says “(Love) does not cherish inflated ideas of its own importance.”


Why Are We Lost?

“I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish” (Luke 13:5).
Jesus said, “I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins: for except ye believe that I am he, ye shall die in your sins” (John 8:24).
I recently read this interesting religious item. Eskimo: “If I did not know about God and sin, would I go to hell?” Priest: “No, not if you did not know.” Eskimo: “Then why did you tell me?”
Interesting? Yes. Accurate? NO.


To Two Too

“So then do not be foolish, but understand what the will of the Lord is” (Eph 5:17 NASU).
Recently, a sequel to one of the “dumbest” movies in history has come out. It’s titled “Dumb and Dumber to.” No, not “two” but, intentionally, “to.” Get it? I won’t waste my money or my time watching such stupidity, but I’ve referenced it to make a point.
